. >> thanks, lee said. the next question is for elise cohen with the national consumer law center. in the context of the qualified mortgage definition -- in your opinion what is a rebuttable presumption of compliance meeting for consumers? >> thank you. first, let me applaud the bureau for the detailed articulation of the rebuttable presumption for subprime borrowers that appears to be included in the rule. we look forward to reading it. including the use of residuals and, as an articulate it reason for rebutting the presumptions. what is it? it is the opportunity to show that your loan was forcibly unaffordable when it was made, even if it meets the definition of a qualified mortgage. it is a chance to save your home if you can prove your case. while the qualified mortgage definition promotes more sustainable landing, there are always gaps, like there were after h.o.p.a., and new products developed. this helps address those instances. beyond consumers, this also relates to how the market functions. the main goal of the rule is to incentivize sustainable lending and good behavior.

: the gentleman yields back. for what purpose does the gentleman from tennessee seek recognition? mr. cohen: to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: does the gentleman ask for unanimous consent? mr. cohen: i do indeed. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from tennessee is recognized for one minute. mr. cohen: thank you, mr. speaker. we've heard from a colleague of mine on the democratic side who sounds like he's not going to vote for this provision and we heard from a couple folks from the other side. i'm going to vote for it, not because i think it's all the best, sugar and spice and everything nights, but because for one thing, i believe our president and our vice president know what they can get in a negotiated deal with the republican side in the senate and what might pass this house as well. and they know what our country needs. and my district can't afford to wait a few days and have the stock market go down 300 points tomorrow if we don't get together and do something and people in my district need unemployment compensation and they need to know in the future

. secretary cohen is out there now. i came back with the following set of impressions from it. first of all, they are very concerned about what is going on in iraq. they understand about the problems of the weapons of mass destruction and the fact that they do threaten them. it is less visible, i think, than a cross border threat. second, they are fully convinced that this crisis has been created by saddam hussein. they are concerned about the iraqi people, as are we, which is why we support this oil for food plan that we wrote originally with the resolution and is now being proposed to be expanded by kofi annan. they also preferred diplomatic moves, but they also understand that should there be consequences, there will be responsible for the grave consequences. i feel confident of their support. they state they have domestic audiences and they state their support for their own purposes. i do feel that should we use force, they will be helpful to us. i think that they also understand the dangers. it is not quite the same situation as when saddam hussein invaded kuwait and there were six mon

the top of this morning by mr. cohen -- the op ed by mr. cohen. we will discuss the accuracy, historical and artistically inside, but does a masterful job in suggesting in the real world there are no right angles and no easy answers to very difficult situations. that, to me, was a great service. >> i also liked the movie. it was very entertaining, but it is a movie, and there were some things i really liked and things i did not like. i did not like, for example, the portrayal of the enhanced interrogation techniques. i did not like the fact that it made a false link between torture and intelligence successes. i also think torture does not work, and our programs work because it was not tortured. there were other things i liked about the movie. i liked the fact that it conveyed that this was a 10-year marathon parian rather than a sprint -- rather than a sprint by a president, and the agency was the focus of this effort and succeeded because of the commitment, dedication, and tenacity of its people. i like the fact that it showed the enhanced interrogation program had something to do with
